FREE training to tackle climate change and rising energy bills

Aug 25, 2022

Want to know more about climate change and what you can do about it? Worried about energy bills and want to know the actions you can take to improve energy efficiency?

Keep Scotland Beautiful is running a series of FREE 90-minute online workshops for Falkirk residents, business owners and people working in the area about the climate emergency and what we can do to tackle it.

Each workshop will cover why the climate emergency matters for Falkirk and how taking positive action can help tackle other issues such as the rising cost of living. Tailored to our local community, the workshops will:

  • Use local examples to show how climate change impacts Falkirk and how we can adapt to it.
  • Highlight the challenges and opportunities of sustainability for businesses, communities, and local residents.
  • Outline actions to take that contribute to Falkirk’s progress to net zero and could help bring down energy bills.
Why care about the climate emergency?

With the right information, we can respond to the risks, responsibilities, and opportunities that the climate emergency brings. Through this training session:

  • Businesses and community groups will be able to demonstrate their commitment to tackling climate change.
  • Business and community groups will be more competitive when applying for funding and public sector contracts.
  • Businesses, staff, community groups and local residents will understand what they can do to be more energy efficient to bring down bills and develop new skills.
  • Everyone will feel empowered to take effective action to tackle climate change.

The 90-minute online workshop takes place online via Zoom and includes an open Q&A session. You can book your place on Eventbrite.
